Moving To Queen Creek
Queen Creek Arizona has seen substantially more growth and development than most areas in Arizona over the last decade. The population, mostly families with children under the age of 18, has grown more than 800% since the year 2000. Thousands of tourists come from around the nation for the summer festivals and for the handpicked fruits and vegetables that are available locally. There are also many parks, trails and outdoor activities including San Tan Mountain Regional Park that attracts thousands of visitors each year.
Queen Creek is around 35 miles outside of Phoenix, Arizona. Close enough to the large city, yet retaining a natural element of scenic beauty unseen in the cities that are nearby. Within the city, you will find suburban families living next to fruit and vegetable and even horse and cattle farms.
There are many activities for families to enjoy throughout the year. Schnepf Farms of Queen Creek hosts the annual Peach Festival and includes activities for all ages. Children tend to enjoy the train that runs through the farmland and adults have plenty of festival shopping for souvenirs and home-made goods. Queens Creek Horseshoe Park and Equestrian Center is open year round and has private and group horseback riding and trail adventures for all ages.
For those that may be more sports inclined instead of nature fans, there is a great sports complex in the city. Barney Family Sports Complex offers soccer, volleyball and other sporting events throughout the year.
Once you have made the decision to move to Queen Creek and have a reliable real estate agent, you will be able to find the home of your dreams for you and your family. While it’s possible to view homes via the internet, it’s always best to have an agent that knows the area, history, schools, business development and annual events to be able to give you all the facts necessary when making a decision to purchase a new home.
You want to know that the home you’re looking at has been well maintained, is in a good neighborhood and is accessible to areas of shopping and activities. While one can check the internet for local homes in Queen Creek, never rely on ads alone to make a decision. Also, never rely on sites like Craigslist to find a home in the area. While people can virtually buy and sell anything on sites like Craigslist, buying a home is a venture best taken on in person.
Queen Creek is a close-knit community with access to the best in city or farm life. It’s a community where neighbors support neighbors in both business and personal life, and one where a family can grow and succeed with ample support from the community due to the growth and development of family oriented business, activities and the close mind-set of the individual community members.
